My boys love seeing their cousins and this time it was extra special because we all met up at the beach to celebrate my mom's birthday. The kids are all 5 months a part and under 2 1/2 so we had an exhausting (being photographer + mom on a shoot isn't easy!) but fun shoot at the beach. Afterwards, E & W made a birthday cake for their grandmother with me. Lots of icing = big smiles! PS - I like the idea that a perfect picture is a real one. Notice the sand all over my son's face (sigh)...boys.
